The days when facts had any role to play in our world are long gone

Psychiatrists warn parents from encouraging their youngsters to convert to the opposite sex.

The American College of Pediatricians issued a sharply worded statement warning against any policies that condition children to accept transgenderism as normal.

“Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” the statement said.

One of the statement’s three co-authors is John Hopkins Medical School professor Paul McHugh. The former chief psychiatrist at John Hopkins Hospital, McHugh has long warned that sex-reassignment operations ignore and even worsen a patient’s underlying problems. Monday’s statement made a similar point: “Facts — not ideology — determine reality.”

“When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such,” the doctors went on to say.

Talk about being out of touch with reality.

    The American College of Pediatricians will now be labeled a “Hate Group” and will be placed on this map, which I cannot believe even exists: https://www.splcenter.org/hate-map

    We are doomed!

      Ahhh yes. Marc Potok’s little maps of non-existant hate groups. Apparetly the Klan is crazy active in R.I. Who knew?

      Dude –

      You can’t choose your gender. It’s that whole XX or XY thingy. It’s just like being a retard. You are born one, and there is nothing you can do to change it. Not you Dude. The other retard. This one:

      You retard.
      Your Pal,
      Walt

    They are brave. Will probably all be fired and blacklisted.

      They will soon be Obammie’s Emmanuel Goldstein. MSDNC will run ten two minute hate sequences per day until they resign in shame or change their opinion to the Party’s approved line.

      Indeed. But, hey, who knew there were still sensible “experts” in our midst. Maybe there’s hope after all.

    I don’t think it ends well for Bruce (Caitlin) Jenner. I predict suicide next within the few years.

    I think Frontline did a story about these kids and their fucked up parents pushing them to start taking puberty blockers because OH SHIT if puberty hits it’s waaaaayyy more difficult to go from a he/she to a she/he.

    The American College of Pediatricians is NOT the The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The AAP was founded in 1930 and has 60k members. The College — which published this “study” — has 60-100 members and was founded in 2002. The college openly describes itself as a conservative group based upon Judea-Christian values. It is a splinter group, founded in protest to the AAPs decision to support gay marriage and support same sex couples raising children. In sum, the medical “facts” and statistics in the article need to be vetted first. This is not an impartial medical group.

    The parents who should be shot are the ones letting the child DECIDE what gender they want to be.

    Parents keep child’s gender under wraps http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/parents-keep-child-gender-under-wraps-170824245.html?soc_src=mediacontentstory&soc_trk=tw via @YahooNews
